Part 4: Since, For and Ago
These are often confusing words for students, let's have a recap!!!


SINCE is used...

...with a Point in Time. (I have been here since yesterday. I will have been there since the day before.)

Click me!



FOR is used...

...with a Length of Time. (I have been here for a day. I will have been there for a day.)

..."far from now (time) in the PAST". (I have been here since one day ago. He arrived 3 days ago. [Future use is not possible])

SINCE can be used most naturally with one particular aspect, which one is it?

The Perfect Aspect. (Present Perfect, Past Perfect etc)

Click me!



Why does SINCE correspond so well to the Perfect Aspect?

Well SINCE communicates the idea of a previous point in time in relation to the perspective used by the speaker.
For example:
I have been here (perspective is now) since 3pm (previous point in time).
I will have been at the airport (perspective is when I will be at the airport) since about 5am (previous point in time to the perspective).
[N.B. That this "5 am" is in the future of the speaker, but in the past of the perspective used by the speaker.]
I had been at the airport (perspective is when I was at the airport) since about 7am that morning (previous point in time to the perspective).
